About Hutchinson Jonas
Hutchinson Jonas combines the expertise from two established and experienced teams, who together form the sister company of Hamlin Knight. We work alongside Hamlin Knight as specialist recruitment consultants in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry.
Our established heritage
Initially we set up and grew our reputations independently. Hutchinson Consultancy LTD was founded in 2005 and provides knowledgeable and experienced interim managers to the FMCG industry. Jonas was founded in 1999 and provides well matched candidates of the highest calibre for permanent roles within the FMGC industry.
With our reputations individually firmly established within the food and drink industry, in 2009 we took the decision to amalgamate and share our expertise. We, at Hutchinson Jonas, are now very proud of the service we offer as one of the UK’s leading recruiters in FMCG and the food and drink industries. Together we successfully bring our experience to the Retail, Food Service and Manufacturing market arenas. We provide well matched interim, permanent and search and selection recruitment solutions to established blue chip companies, small and growing companies and Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
Delivering excellence: what makes us different
Our consultants have over 35 years combined experience in FMCG recruitment. As a team we hold an extensive understanding of the specialist areas within Manufacturing, Retail and Food Service, for which we provide ambitious candidates for Technical/ Quality Assurance, New Product Development (NPD), Operations/Production, Supply Chain, Engineering, and Buying and Commercial/Sales Professionals. We are devoted to staff development to ensure our candidates are leaders in their field and remain committed and motivated to the service that they provide. Additionally we heavily invest in database technology to ensure that we have an up to date understanding of our candidates’ qualifications, skills and availability at any given time. We recruit candidates who we feel are able to uphold the established reputation of our clients, who include Marks and Spencer’s, McCain’s, Sainsbury’s, Greencore, KFC, 2 Sisters and Pret A Manger.
We very much share our values and expertise with Hamlin Knight across the country. We are dependable; we work with integrity; we are passionate about FMCG; and we work as a team. For our clients, this essentially means we are in a unique place to save you time. We value individuals and we invest the time in initially understanding the needs of our candidates and clients and fit this with our in depth understanding of the market. As a team we adopt a flexible and honest approach, which is adaptable to the needs of each individual and their needs.
Whether our clients are looking for interim or permanent colleagues to complement their team, we have the correct support and the recruitment solution to best suit their needs.
